Where are you from?

Newfoundland but I now live here in Toronto.

What brings you to MIA? Is this your first visit?

I love Inuit art, I consider it a unique and highly valuable part of Canadian heritage.

Why is this your favourite piece in the collection?

Because I love the whole Sedna story and in this piece there is so much drama.
